This past weekend was Somerville Open Studios – it’s one of the largest citywide open studio events in the country.  Alistair and I spent the afternoon with a friend and his mom, happily walking around town and checking out the amazing array of creativity – between gardens, photographs, interactive electric lights, and murals, there was a lot to take in.

Even the weather was perfectly cooperative, 60s and sunny, and according to my fitness tracker we walked 5.8 miles through the course of the day.

On Sunday the four of us went on a geocache walk.  We parked right outside Larson’s preschool, and within a 1.6 mile round trip we found no less than three caches.  I am continually amazed at how many of them are right in my town, I think we’ve found 8 so far and we aren’t done yet.   Also continually impressed by just how much wild space our city has, four miles outside of Boston.

After that we just puttered around the house and the yard.  Our pear tree is blooming…

Last year we grew two pears, but the squirrels got them both.  We’re hoping to be able to sample some ourselves this year.
